Actually, erectile dysfunction is a classic condition associated with diabetes. Erectile dysfunction is mainly due to diminished blood flow to the penis. Excessive blood glucose (diabetes) progressively destroys blood circulation. Exercise and eating a healthy diet improves blood flow to every part of the body...and, most especially, the "part" you're concerned with.

Thanks for chiming in bruno! I really appreciate your input here and in other communities.

It's time for you to put up a profile photo, by the way.
